What Gamespot Users have to say about Total War: Rome II

    This game is a half finished piece of crap. No Joke! I will never preorder a total war game again.

    CA lied straight to my face. So many reviews and interviews explaining how they would make huge improvements to the AI, yet the AI is so bad its even worse than previous AI's from earlier releases. Th...

    My system couldn't handle it, but it didn't stop me from playing 18 hours in 2 days!!!

    I'm a total war veteran, and with the original Rome TW being my favorite I was very exited to play this game. However, I trusted on the minimum system requirements and was very disappointed. The game ...

    I am an avid Total War series fan, and was looking forward to the 3rd September release, but if only I knew what disappointment awaited me. Here is my list of the good and the bad in the game: The ...

    I enjoy this game quite a bit, but the more you play it the more you see that its simply unfinished and quite broken

    Ok lets start with the good stuff. The game is gorgeous. Watching my Hastati decimate enemy troops with a volley of javelins before crashing into them is a pure joy to behold. It is a Total war g...

    CA pre-order money making scheme (a broken release)

    Rated on September 18, 2013 by remusgd13

    This is a huge disappointment. I'm a big fan of the series, I've played all of them and know what bugs they had each time they released a new one. However, everyone of the predecessors was playable ev...

    Does not live up to promises or past releases from the series.

    Rated on September 08, 2013 by jtblackburn1

    I rate on a 1 to 10 scale, keep in mind all categories are equal so end score is not an average. I have always loved the Total War franchise. In fact I loved the previous version of Rome and playe...

    The only dept from CA who did their job well was the Marketing dept, I've never played a more hollow game in the Series.

    Rated on September 08, 2013 by zonks32

    The game looks great, animations look great, though the game mechanics, interface and as usual, the AI let this game down, features from prior titles are missing, new features are generic looking, the...

    CA has spent all its money fooling us into buying a barely half-finished game that is a major step back from Shogun 2.

    Rated on September 08, 2013 by vlad_123

    This game really destroyed me. I've been a hardcore fan of earlier total war games playing up until medieval 2 and then picking up Shogun 2 which I've poured hundreds of hours into. I've been a hardco...

    Beautiful game with a broken difficulty<br /> No challenge..

    Rated on September 08, 2013 by Etagloc

    I am not TTW veteran, but I have played almost all of them for 30 40 hours + ROME 1 was my favourite. So I am a little sad to see this game "fail" --->MY
